U.S. Abroad Tracker (25 and younger): Jonathan Gonzalez's Monterrey rolls into Mexican Apertura final

Jonathan Gonzalezmoved into the final of Mexico's Torneo Apertura when Monterrey beat Morelia, 4-0, in Sunday's semifinals to complete a sweep of its second straight series.

Gonzalez, 18, has started 18 of 21 games for Los Rayados, who won the first phase. They will face city rival Tigres in the Clasico Regio. Goalkeeper Lalo Fernandez and Jose Torres were on the bench for Tigres, which beat Club America, 3-0, to sweep the other semifinal series.

All the Apertura semifinal goals:

France. Maki Tall scored twice off the bench to lead French Ligue 2 team Tours to a 4-2 win at National 2 (fourth division) Limoges in the French Cup.

The former U.S. U-20 has seen only limited playing time in league play, where Tours is last in Ligue 2 with five points in 17 games, but he has four goals in two cup matches.

Germany. Christian Pulisic started for Borussia Dortmund in its 1-1 tie at Bayer Leverkusen that could not stop it from falling to sixth place in the Bundesliga. Dortmund's winless streak is now at seven games.

Weston McKennie stayed in Schalke 04's starting lineup following his early exit in the Revierderby at Dortmund, but he exited in the 55th minute of its 2-2 tie with FC Cologne.
